Oooohhhhhhh reading is fundamental. Exsqueeze me. Oh, in that case, then she can gossip all she wants. LOL Note to Sally - no one's resume is perfect. Don't sweat it. "Massaging" doesn't necessarily mean his resume is bogus. You did your part, now bow out and let him do his job. The wife is an idiot btw.

I worked in HR for eons and what I do know is that if Sally is not going to talk to the hiring manager, she damn sure shouldn't be talking to anyone else. She's worried about a potential liability in the dude, when she's the liability herself, telling his business to a third party and taking HR business outside the office. Absolutely unethical. Someone should recheck her references. LOL

LMAO Unless you're Sally, or the wife, then someone is gossiping. LOL

This has sorta happened to me before. If it's a close friend you should say something. I would want the spouse to know that my loyalty is to my friend and not to him and that there will be no secrets safe with me. Silence seems as though it could insinuate complicity. But at the same time, I would definitely be conscious of my friend's feelings, so I would repeat the story in a way that is not accusatory. I would either say, "so-and-so said XYZ and it just made me uncomfortable. I told him it wasn't cool, but just let him know not to talk to me like that anymore." This way you achieve full disclosure (and allow her to arrive at her own conclusions) and it's not so much as accusatory as to his intentions, but instead, is moreso about your feelings... and who can argue with how something makes you feel?

Yeah, I have to co-sign everyone else, if they're cool enough for one of them to invite themselves and their family over, then I don't see why it's even taken 10 years to find out why they haven't been invited over. I would just ask, if I even cared.
I made the same pledge about 2 years ago. It's been touch and go, but it gets easier the more you do it. Happy New Year to you too, mama. Hope you get all you want and need in 2010. I too, am just trying to be better. I'm hoping that this time I get closer to some of the goals I set throughout the year, not just at the beginning. =)
